attack by gadhafi on his own people, and it does appear that they've managed to do that. in fact, the people of benghazi are saying that gadhafi's tanks were, they say, literally minutes away from descending on them, if you like, when this strike began. so, frankly, from the point of view of those people, those rebels in benghazi, from the point of view of the coalition, it didn't happen too soon. >> keir, so, when you talk about what the french jets did yesterday, among the things they did, they attacked the military vehicles, those things on the ground that you're talking about. when you say that there's going to be a rotation of sorts, does that mean that french jets will not be in the air today again? and if not, do we know which nation is sending up air power? >> reporter: we don't know yet. some nations are yet to declare their involvement. and the united states last night were very careful to say we're going to allow nations, particularly arab nations to declare when they are involved and how they are involved.
